We (me, my wife and my 6 year old daughter) were traveling to Cairns with my friend and his family (friend, his wife and his 2 and half year old daughter) and booked a 2 bed room apartment with kitchen and common room. And I am happy to report that we made a good decision.
Bay Village is 15 minute drive from the Cairns airport and hotel arranged a free pickup (and drop) for us.
Staff was very friendly, helpful and cheerful.
Our apartment itself was very well ventilated both (air and light) and very clean. Bed rooms were just perfect -- not too large and not too small. Bathrooms were also clean and perfect and were well stocked with all required toiletries including shaving cream.
Apartment room had a nice kitchen which was well stocked with everything one would need to cook nice breakfast or dinner. In fact we did make bread-omelettes, sandwiches and rice. There was plenty of cutlery and other utensils. Toaster, dishwasher, microwave and electric stove were also very functional.
The common room was large and had nice dinning table and 2 sofas. Apartment also had a nice sit-out.
In short we were very happy with the apartment and utilized all the facilities.
Hotel itself is a good 20 minutes walk from the the Cairns Water Front, Esplanade and with 2 children our walks stretched upto 30 minutes. Looking back we felt that we should have rented a car!
Over all we had a great time at Hotel Bay Village. Just one negative point that I have is: We were offered complimentary break-fast for 2 people, even though we had booked a 2 bed room apartment (which is expected to host 2+2 = 4 people)!
